Date: Saturday, April 18, 2015

Reported by: Gordon Pateman on Tuesday, April 21, 2015


Date: Monday, April 20, 2015

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Diamond Firetail (Stagonopleura guttata) (1) We have not seen a diamond 
firetail at our place since February last year. In much the same place we 
spotted a pair of Australian ringnecks (not common) and a grey fantail (even 
less common), plus the usual groups of weebills, rosellas etc. Half a dozen New 
Holland honeyeaters seem to have decided that our creek bed makes a good home, 
a favourite haunt being a large dead shrub, where they have noisy conferences 
with brown-headed and singing honeyeaters.

Date: Friday, April 24, 2015

Location: Toronto St Ovingham

Eastern Spinebill (Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris) (1) Has been visiting our 
front garden for several days, feeding from Wee Jasper Grevilleas. Have only 
had very occasional sightings previously (may be partially an observer effect, 
as we've both just retired and are home more often than in the past, but the 
plantings are also recent).
